1.14.18 Working the Crowd

Trent Reznor said, “Live interaction with a crowd is a cathartic, spiritual kind of exchange, and it’s intensified at a festival.” Or, we might add, in a poetry radio show. On week’s edition of melodically challenged, we invite you to join the crowd because we’ll be working the crowd in our poems and music.
